The converters/libiconv port
libiconv-1.17 – character set conversion library
libiconv provides an iconv() implementation, for use on systems which
don't have one, or whose implementation cannot convert from/to Unicode.
It can convert from any of supported encodings to any other, through Unicode
It has also some limited support for transliteration, i.e. when a character
cannot be represented in the target character set, it can be approximated
through one or several similarly looking characters. Transliteration is
activated when "//TRANSLIT" is appended to the target encoding name.
libiconv is for you if your application needs to support multiple character
encodings, but that support lacks from your system.
